Russian spy poisoned by nerve agent linked to British security consultant who worked for Christopher Steele

Published

on

A British security consultant close to the Russian agent who was poisoned last weekend worked for an investigative consultancy agency run by former British MI6 agent Christopher Steele, the Telegraph reports.

According to the Telegraph, the consultant “lived close” to Col. Sergei Skripal, the Russian double agent who was attacked by assassins Sunday. Skripal remains in intensive care after he was targeted with a chemical nerve agent while shopping with his daughter in Salisbury on Sunday.

As the Telegraph reprots, Skripal “moved to Salisbury” in 2010 and “became close to a security consultant employed by” Steele, the British spy who compiled a dossier alleging collusion between Donald Trump and Russian officials during the 2016 presidential election. The British security consultant cited by the Telegraph was also lived in Salisbury and worked at Orbis Business Intelligence, the company run by Steele.

Valery Morozov, a contractor who earned political asylum in the UK after fleeing Russia in 2014, told Channel 4 News on Wednesday he believes Skripal was “in regular contact with military intelligence officers at the Russian Embassy.”

“If you have a military intelligence officer working in the Russian diplomatic service, living after retirement in the UK, working in cyber-security and every month going to the embassy to meet military intelligence officers – for me, being a political refugee, it is either a certain danger or, frankly speaking, I thought that this contact might not be very good for me because it can bring some questions from British officials,” Morozov said.

As RawStory reported Wednesday, the attack on Skripal preceded an in-depth The New Yorker report on Steele’s work compiling the dossier.

Published

on

Jeffrey Epstein apparently did nothing but sexually abuse underage girls, according to one victim's attorney.

The sources of the financier's wealth are murky, as he had only one known client -- women's clothing magnate Les Wexner -- but attorney Brad Edwards said that seems to have freed Epstein up to engage in nonstop predatory conduct, reported Vanity Fair.

“It was his full-time job,” said attorney Brad Edwards. “We have not found anyone who has provided information about a legitimate business he was engaged [in].”

Jeffrey Epstein’s IT consultant reveals he saw girls who ‘couldn’t have more than 15 or 16’ on private island

Published

on

ABC News broke a story just after midnight Thursday about a former IT consultant of Jeffrey Epstein's who resigned because he couldn't take some of the things he was seeing on Epstein's private island compound.

The island, which has been called "pedophile island" by locals, had "topless women everywhere.

"There were photos of topless women everywhere," said contractor Steve Scully, who began working for Epstein in 1999 and continued for six years. "On his desk, in his office, in his bedroom."

‘Names are going to start coming out’: New report says more elites will be exposed in the Epstein case — and ‘DC is on edge’

Published

on

Will other powerful people — presumably men — get taken down as a result of the sex trafficking case against Jeffrey Epstein?

That’s the hope of many closer followers of the story, but it’s far from clear what, if any, fallout there will be. Epstein’s connections to Presidents Bill Clinton and Donald Trump have raised suspicions about potential evidence of their wrongdoing, such suspicions remain unproven. Alan Dershowitz has already faced accusations of being involved in Epstein’s crimes, though he denies the charge vigorously.

But a new report from Vanity Fair’s Gabriel Sherman says that “DC is on edge” over the Epstein case, and any elites who have run in his circles could be involved. Dozens of girls, if not more, are believed to be involved in his alleged sex trafficking, and lawyers for some of the women who have accused Epstein are strongly suggesting that other high-profile figures will be implicated.
